I have grown PF's before, and had excelent yields for a first time grower. Now I am growing Mazetec and Hawians. I am aware they don't pin invetro as quickly as PF's, but is there any other observable differences I should be aware of?

PFCs usually give more abhorts, if you care about those things. With my mazatecs, the individual fruits were bit smaller on average than the PFCs, but there were alot. Then again, i've only tried mazatecs once. Hawaiians will give you big pretty golden shrooms with few if any abhorts.

Both Hawaiians and Mazatecs benefit from a double-end casing when birthed, whereas it isn't as necessary with PFCs.

Also, as you mentioned, i think they colonize and pin a bit slower than PFCs. They will eventually p in invitr o, though, if that's what you're looking for. Mazatecs especially.

Just from my experience...anyone is free to refute me.

Let me emphasize what Silly said; Hawaiians really benefit from the double casing. In fact I've noticed that about 95% of the shrooms come out of the casing layer. PFCs on the other hand come out all over. That is not to say PFCs are better than Hawaiians. Hawaiians hardly abort at all which is another benifit they have over the PFCs. There's nothing wrong with the aborts of the PFC, but if you've had to pick a thousand of them of each one of your cake, you will really appriciate that aspect of the Hawaiians. PFCs won't always abort so much but they will quite often.

Thanks for the information.
